Thank you for the suggestion, the variable LANG was not properly set,
and now the
Gdk-WARNING has disappeared.
This also makes clear that the warning was not the problem, because
now when I try to run XMMS I always have

*** glibc detected *** free(): invalid pointer: 0xb6df7524 ***

compared to the previous error there is a little difference in the address

>*** glibc detected *** free(): invalid pointer: 0xb6dfa524 ***

but the error is the same

I finally do a backtrace (thank you Ken!), and this are the last lines:

#28 0x080508db in ?? ()
#29 0xb8000ff4 in ?? () from /lib/
#30 0xb80016b4 in ?? ()
#31 0x00000000 in ?? ()
#32 0xbffff688 in ?? ()
#33 0xb7ff2fc3 in _dl_lookup_symbol_x () from /lib/
Previous frame inner to this frame (corrupt stack?)

Any idea? It's an XMMS problem or it's only mine?

Searching for the error in bugzilla in the XMMS site I found a person
that had the same error in a Fedora Core 3 installation and XMMS
1.2.10. I added my case to this bug.
